why not cet gateau?? Isn't cette feminine and cet masculine??
"cet" is indeed the masculine form but only the one used in front of a word starting with a vowel or a non-aspired H:
could ce gateau also mean this cake? How do you differentiate?
"ce gâteau" is this or that cake
when we want to differentiate the closer one from the farther one, we use: "ce gâteau-ci" (this) and "ce gâteau-là" (that), respectively.
Is there a reason for why 'bizarre' goes after 'forme' whereas 'jolie' goes before?
"bizarre" follows the general rule and "jolie" is an exception
